worse. this was a study done by columbia university and indiana university, i think. it is not totally getting worse, but it is in some places. i think that because people are learning, and we are telling them that it is like any other illness and it is a disorder of the brain, and then they are afraid of a brain disorder. so we are trying to decide on how to pitch a stigma, and the journalists educating people and writing balanced reports are very helpful in that, but i long for the day when everybody except mental illness as a disease like any other. whennk that's -- that somebody with a mental illness goes to the doctor, and they are diagnosed, that almost always leave without hope for a better life, and i believe that is changing a little bit. i think they have always been told they will have to live with it and maybe they can control it with medication or something, but i think that is beginning to change a little bit. now we know that recovery is possible. mental health treatment is beginning to be, instead of just controlling, moving toward the strength that people have and givi

of indiana, we have islamic groups, and i do not think we have done nearly as good a job as the york city has done, much smaller in scope. but this problem is very local. it means you have to have contact occasionally with the leaders of the islamic communities who are the people who can identify suspected radicals within their community. it is a problem the federal government clearly has to deal with it and be helpful on. but the real action, it seems to me, is at the state and local level to identify these people and try to head them off. you began your question with chapter 12 of the commission report, the whole question of what to do about islam and the foreign policy fischer's which are largely ignored in the reporting on the report. but that raises the question of how united states foreign policy must deal with the islamic world. it is a big question. >> how much is possible? it is like saying how do we prevent bank robberies. the insert is you do not prevent bank robberies. you solve bank robberies after the happened. the notion of trying to prevent attacks by radicalized americans or
tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from indiana rise? mr. burton: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute, revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. burton: mr. speaker, the fed chairman ben bernanke said last week when he was giving a speech that we didn't really have to worry about inflation. that the long-term inflation problem would not get beyond 2%. so in case mr. bernanke or the administration's paying attention i'd like to read a few facts to them. the price of milk has gone up 38% since last year. the price of sugar is up 20% since last year. the price of corn is up 62% since last year. as of august beef prices grew 13% or 52 cents a pound since last year, the largest increase in the last seven years. gasoline is up 35% from a year ago, 98 cents a gallon. and the projected inflation rate is much, much higher than the administration or the fed says is going to occur. so i hope that we'll stop these keynesian policies, these socialistic policies, these big-spending policies that are killing the american people.
a letter from c.b.o. to senator evan bayh, former senator evan bayh, of indianaering that was in thove of 2009, some five months after passage of obamacare. i'm sorry, that was actually six months before. this is when the bill was being developed an a -- and debated in the senate. if you like your health plan you cannot keep your health plan. according to the united states census pew roe, the 2010 census shows that employer-provided insurance fell by 1.5 million to 55.3% from 56.1% in 2009. and it is continuing to fall and it would not surprise me if within the next six to eight years, madam speaker, that 100 million workers in this country will lose their employer-provided health insurance because the mandates of obamacare make it impossible to meet this requirement. it's not just a matter of being forced to provide health care for their employees, it is the type of health insurance coverage dictated by the federal government. that's why my colleagues, 60% of this country remains totally opposed to this. finally, on this slide, on this poster, obama care will ration health care. don b

is worth it. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from indiana rise? >> to address the house for one minute and revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized. >> the american people want to be in the business of job creation an growth. unfortunately, washington is in the business of regulating, spending, and taxing. this administration has barreled down the road of deficits and mandates. we all know where that road leads, right off a cliff. job creators know our $14.6 trillion debt is a tax on the american taxpayer. they know that higher taxes mean fewer jobs and they know that focusing on compliance rather than innovation is a failing business model. mr. stutzman: in the face of these difficult times, americans are optimistic. not even the worst unemployment since the great depression can kill the american spirit. washington can give job creators confidence by living within its means and reining in spending. americans are ready for real growth not another failed stimulus. let's pass a balanced budget amendment
from washington, indiana. caller: good morning. mr. kucinich, i wish i lived in a district where i could vote for you. i agree with almost everything you stand for and what you do. guest: thank you. caller: i will tell you, the fact that we don't have the pipeline for natural gas along our interstate systems, it burns me up. we and the united states has no energy policy. i do not know what we have been doing since the first arab embargo back in the 1970's. i sat in line for hours and we're still doing that. it is like nobody is home. i wish you had more ability to do things and get things straightened out. host: what can you do? guest: we need an american energy policy and we need to invest in the transition and our economy away from resources that would ruin the environment. decorates a cost on individuals in terms of their own personal health. the air that we breathe it gets polluted by certain energy sources. we need a new manufacturing policy. we need a new trade policy where we cancel -- we cancel all of our trade agreements. they are contingent on workers' rights, on cuban ri
arizona and enacted their own laws. my own set of georgia has, alabama has, utah has, indiana has. in each of those cases, except for alabama, courts have joined the enforcement of the act on the doctrine of pre-emption. alabama has stated decision, while it further studies the question. the national association of state legislature, national council state legislature reports that over 30 states have significant immigration legislation pending. so there is an obvious need for guidance. the one caveat i would offer is that this involves a question of preemption. the issue in these cases is not racial profiling. a lot of public discussion centers on that. but the issue is whether or not these laws are consistent with federal statutes. the court might well think that congress will get around to addressing this issue and it is congress that ought to be providing the guidance. with that caveat in mind, that the court might decide to sit back for a while and see if congress does anything, the other factors would seem overwhelmingly to indicate that the court ought to take a look at it. in which
